The Black Horse Western Weekend starts this Friday over on The Tainted Archive (
Over the weekend end the blog owner, Gary Dobbs, plans a marathon of over a hundred items that include reviews, interviews and articles about Black Horse Westerns, the authors and books. One huge undertaking.
Over recent months interest in Black Horse Westerns has taken off and many new writers have been surprised at the success of their novels predominant amongst them are Jack Martin and Terry James and Thomas McNulty the latter still being in Amazon's top 10 western bestsellers. Old hands, too, are being recognised like Lance Howard and Rory Black's 'Iron Eyes' series - two of these books figure in the current chart along with Abe Dancer's 'Shot Gold'.
One Black Horse Western, I.J.Parnham's 'Devine's Law', was the subject of debate between The Tainted Archive, Broken Trails and I.J.Parnham's own blog at The Culbin Trail.
Recently, a bunch of Black Horse Western writers along with a wild bunch of new writers and old hands got together to produce the serialised western known as 'The Story With No Name'.
Nowadays the Black Horse Western brand crops up all over the place and the writers come from every continent in the world.
So sit back and enjoy the Black Horse Western weekend over on The Tainted Archive.
